Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve BioBlitz

June 27 | 10:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT

NOTE: Please check back for updates regarding this event. As Oregon reopens, we will most likely be adapting some of our events.

WHAT?
A BioBlitz is an intensive survey of a defined area on a single day with the goal of identifying all the species to be found in that area at one time – it is a snapshot of biodiversity. Come explore Oregon’s coastal waters while helping local scientists survey the species of the region!

We plan to have a brief introduction on Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve and answer any iNaturalist questions at the beginning of the event.

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
Get started on iNaturalist now: https://www.inaturalist.org/
This is a useful tool (for smartphones) which enables any observer of the natural world, of any skill level, to contribute information to a vast national database. This is the method by which participants will contribute to the Bioblitz.

1 – Download iNaturalist app
2 – Connect to Project: The Cape Perpetua BioBlitz Series
3 – Click “observe” to capture your first observation
4 – Label/identify the species if known
5 – If unknown, someone else can come in and identify for you
6 – Join us on July 6, 9:30am at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center

Note: You DO NOT need to have wifi while you are taking observations, your observations will automatically upload once you get connected again.
